Oklahoma will beat the Gators showing that strength of schedule and opportunity will win out over a fairly weak schedule, an East Coast bias, and tradition.

So looking at it that way, the Sooners will do the Longhorns and the Big 12 South proud.

Florida is #3 in SOS

Also not many longhorn fans will be cheering on OU for Big XII pride.

I personally looked over the SOS of Florida, Bama, USC, OK and Texas and came up with this based on my own personal computing system PCS:

Texas, OK, FL, USC, Bama. Longhorn fans can do anything they want, but I recommend they stay outta OK bars and get ready for their own bowl game. So who will it be? SC?

Texas Decides when their up by 40 points in the 4th to put in the 2nd string not have their 1st string offense in the game and throwing the ball into the end zone. Please save the Stoops is a class act, he's scumbag.



HAHAHA, I was waiting for the "it's the refs fault we lost" excuses.



Yea I mean OU is 1 in SOS Texas is 4th in SOS, thats a whole lot tougher.


Of course no of this matter as Florida will beat OU in the BCS game. Maybe one day people will see OU CHOKES in BCS games.

I thought you were finished talking about Texas and OU? It's a bitter pill to swallow for the Sips, I know.

SOS is SOS, but for tu it's SOL!

It is what it is. I really dont feel like talking OU vs Texas for the 6th time. I really dont because whats done is done.

I will wait for the National Championship game and that night become a Gator fan. Call me a sore loser, I would have pulled for OU if they beat us in the Big XII game but they didn't.

If Texas had gone instead of OU, I'd still be pulling for the Longhorns. I'm the same way in pro sports. The team that beat your team pulling out the win only proves that your conference is better and I'll always pull for the Big XII.

Floriday beat the team that was ranked #1 in the BCS rankings.

Since those rankings do count------------any one loss team that accomplishes that on the final day should be in the BCS championship game ahead of any one loss team who did not (Texas)
